A guide to men’s formal footwear
They say a man’s shoes say a lot about him, so don’t you want to make the right impression with yours? Garmany’s guide to footwear will help you dress for the season, from holiday parties and special occasions to work meetings and lazy weekends.
The most classic of men’s dress shoes are Oxfords, which are characterized by their closed lacing system, where the eyelet facings are stitched under the vamp. Magnanni has an extensive selection of these beauties, which pair perfectly with suits or slacks and sport coats.
These laceless shoes have a single, double or sometimes triple buckle to keep them secure and can be worn interchangeably with Oxfords. Try a leather option in black or brown from Scarpe de Bianco.
Chelsea boots, which have elastic gussets on the sides, are a dressier alternative to sneakers and a more casual alternative to lace-ups, making them perfect to pair with jeans or khakis. Salvatore Ferragamo has stylish Chelsea boots in either suede or leather.
These minimalistic ankle-length boots have just two or three eyelets and are perfect for everyday wear. We suggest chukka boots from Trask, which also come in either suede or leather variations.
Yes, you can wear trainers with a suit or sport coat, as long as they’re not too clunky. Common Projects has some great, clean options in classic black or white that can be dressed up or dressed down.
